This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Enables you to create unit tests for your plugins, run and check the results in a centralized way.
Since version 2.0 it has phpunit bundled in so all you need to get started with unit testing is to install this plugin.

Its based on the WordPress automated system but distributed as a plugin. Also it does not require a new database and a new configuration file so when you create your unit tests pay special attention to your database access so you keep a consistent database.

Every unit test must extend PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase and be included in the testcase directory you will find under the wp-unit plugin directory.

To run the tests go to the Unit Testing menu in the admin panel and press the Run buttom. The results will be displayed on the same page.
